About David Smith

I am a community pharmacist from Chesterfield who raises money for several local charities by taking part in runs, cycle events, swims and triathlons. My talks are light hearted and include my other hobby of breaking Guinness World Records. So if you want to know about running in Antarctica or the Sahara or maybe a marathon in flip flops get in touch. I also have non sporting talks on the Galápagos Islands and the Holy Land. All fees go to the Charities I support - currently MS Society, SANDS and Ashgate Hospice. I can do talks with 24 hrs notice in an emergency and sometimes less than this. Please note I am only available for evening talks.
